Facebook rolled out its Photo Sync yesterday, Friday, November 30.
Facebook was already taking in millions and millions of images a day and I’m sure with this new program that will dramatically increase.
I saw the banner asking me if I wanted to “Get Started” with the Photo Sync process. I immediately declined. Enabling the photo sync would automatically upload every photo I take, store them, allow me to easily select which ones I want to share, and apply tags automatically with approval.
I’m not a big fan of this option and my reasons for declining it are simple. I want to have control over which images go from my phone to Facebook. I can make those decisions myself, without the aid of Facebook. I like thinking before I post anything to Facebook, especially when it comes to images. I like the control and discipline of not posting whatever without intent behind it.
I will maintain my level of control over my images Facebook. Thank you very much.
